This is my first issue as editor of NWLawyer. I came onboard at the end of November and hit the ground running We settled on this month’s cover story, “The Therapist and the Murderer,” after two pieces came together on the same Washington Supreme Court decision—Volk v.
DeMeerleer. (The title is a play on Janet Malcolm’s classic "The Journalist and
the Murderer"—highly recommended!)
I have worked as an editor and writer for years. From the Seattle P-I to the
Poetry Foundation, from the alternative to the mainstream, I have been in the
trenches and I have also cultivated prizewinning writers. I see editing as a form
of searching—for a compelling story, a buried lead, a voice of truth and authority. Working on stories about the law is proving to be both a challenge and a
pleasure. We are always looking for new ideas! See our submission guidelines on
page 4 or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
League expansion franchise teams,
which become the Seattle Pilots, and
later the Mariners.”
Not correct. The Seattle Pilots
played for one inglorious season, 1969,
in Emil Sicks Stadium in the Rainier
Valley. Mt. Rainier could be seen deep
over the right center field fence.
Before the 1970 season, a used car
salesman (not kidding) named Bud
Selig (who would later become baseball commissioner) stole the Pilots on
April Fools Day and established them
as the Milwaukee Brewers. They still
are the Brewers.
Among the angry baseball fans was
Slade Gorton. Major League Baseball
was sued for breach of contract, Slade
Gorton leading the way, and in 1976, the
lawsuit was dropped in exchange for a
baseball team: the Seattle Mariners.
So the Pilots still exist today, but
as the Brewers.
